    Geoff, if the above doesn't work, I'd suggest searching using the term "Bogie", as that's what they are called in MSTS/OR shape file structure.

    Couple possibilities I can think of for Lurker's confusion. They could be thinking of either Columbia Falls or Kootenai Falls, both of which are in Montana. Whitefish 10 has trackage in western...

    This line definitely has lots of history to it, so intriguing questions. :)

    Backdating the Shasta route to the 1950's would take time, but not impossible (it's nothing I plan on doing, but maybe...

    Thank you all for the comments. :) As mentioned before, still a long way to go but slowly things are starting to take shape. Goal is to meet or exceed Mullan in terms of graphics quality.

    A few recent screenshots from one of the lava flow sections of the route. This is the Lava Park Flow (sometimes called Upper Devil's Garden), between Hotlum and Bolam. Still some work to do with...

    Thank you very much for this. I'm currently working on a massive set of new OR physics (structured using lots of "include" files to make for cleaner OR-specific ENG files) with new Tractive Effort...

    Highly unlikely such a program could be developed prior to the implementation of real spline track by the Open Rails team, where you could manually choose any tangent length or curve radius (and IF...

    Hi Geoff,

    When I did the physics for the engines for Mullan, I took great care to assure accurate tractive effort for all locomotives. It is my opinion that these engines have the most realistic...

    Geoff,



    I never said there hasn't been. I only said, I don't see why there is any problem with a company asking for input from customers.

    The Facebook page is a group of several hundred...

    HiI Jerry,

    I've hiked Palouse Canyon countless times. I'm Assuming this is the bridge in question, about 2 miles north of Palouse Falls. First view is looking towards the west,...

    Hi Geoff,

    In regards to specifically SPSF: for one, it was just a question, no work had or has begun on an SPSF set to my knowledge. Isn't it a good thing that a payware company is seeking some...

    Hi Jerry,

    Excellent, I know it's a long way coming but highly looking forward to this one. I recognized Headquarters right away. By the way, many railroads, including NP, normally used 0.04% per...

    Thanks Chris. I made some attempts at doing that last night, but will try it again manually with the IMG tags like you indicate when I make my next post in this thread.

    Hi Derek,

    There's actually an interesting reason for that 130% factor for Mullan. I had long felt that the adhesion physics in Open Rails during rain and snowfall were wrong. About 2 months ago, I...
  15. Southern Pacific Shasta Route - Development Thread

    Greetings all,

    For my next route project, I am pursuing Southern Pacific's Shasta Route, specifically the entirety of SP's Black Butte Subdivision between Dunsmuir, CA and Klamath Falls, OR set in...

    Paul hit it pretty well that the tractive force curves drive the physics engine. As for being "cheated", pretty much any time you are making more than 10 MPH up Mullan, you are doing great! ;) "Into...

    Yes it does, we secured permission to include one created by a user at ElvasTower.

    Hi Gerry,

    To add to what Geepster said: That signal bridge was taken out of service just 3 or so years ago, and it's functionality replaced by the two signals a half mile or so to the east. Around...

    You are correct. We used ScaleRails for all track in the route.

    Jerry,

    Let me know if you need any additional information on the Camas Prairie. That will a huge undertaking, but I wish you the greatest in being able to get it to completion! That region was...

    You are looking at the extreme west end of the route which is intended only for AI (computer-controlled) train spawning, thus why no activities go out there. If you read the route description in the...

    Hi Derek,

    Are you using the Ctrl-F6 (I believe) command to toggle on track names in the yards?

    Thank you very much for your comments, they are much appreciated. As for your comment on western US mountain railroading: There is more where that came from. With Mullan out, my next plan is an 90's...

    Hi Gerry,

    Thanks for that. The reason I would argue that is a bad policy is that, if we made a post that suggests a certain solution to a problem, and then we later realize that solution is NOT a...
